Yeah, in case you haven't noticed I do do it.“Man who say it cannot be done should not interrupt man doing it.” [Chinese Proverb]
It's all about levels. No one notices or cares about being true to a genre in a cafe or restaurant.
Of course a small (jazz style) kit is fine when playing for fun, in a relaxed setting.
If I was being paid to play in a rock cover band, or 'the real thing' I would opt for standard rock type drums, heads and tunings.
